I have a new addiction!~ It’s a snack I can safely share with my allergic boys!~Allergen-Free Pumpkin Seeds!~ Seriously, I am craving these as I write this!~
Recently I was contacted by a company I had never heard of, called GERBS~ who make allergen-free pumpkin seed snacks!~ They kindly sent us some samples which both my boys LOVE!~ Now, I always bake the pumpkin seeds at Halloween with the seeds we remove, and even though my sons like them- I am not buying pumpkins solely for the seeds!~ Most of the prepackaged pumpkin seeds I see at the supermarket have cross contamination warnings- so we don’t buy them. And honestly, it kind of bummed me out that we only got the seeds for Halloween-because we all like them!~ [OK, and let’s not even mention last year when I burned them~ and we got none! ] Now, thank you GERBS, I don’t have to wait until October to get our fix!~ My most favorite part about these snacks? They are free of: Gluten, wheat, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, dairy, corn, sesame, and shellfish!~ I was really happy to see they also use no oil in the roasting process! They also offer some spice blends, trail mixes, sunflower and flax seeds! This is from their website:
“At Gerbs our company’s top priority’s is to provide consistent taste, quality, and overall customer satisfaction while maintaining our allergen free benefits. We accomplish this by using freshly harvested seeds, tossing them lightly in 100% All-Natural seasoning (blends) that superbly complement the creamy & ‘nutty’ seed flavors, then dry roasting them without using any oils, chemicals or preservatives; yielding a natural 1 year shelf life! We strive to keep the taste of our pumpkin, sunflower, and flax seeds in their natural state, as Mother Nature intended, that is why our seeds are tumble roasted at low temperatures, ensuring that their natural antioxidants, omega fat’s, vitamins & minerals are not burned and evaporated away. A key benefit from owning all our roasting & packaging equipment, simply means each batch of our seeds are never over seasoned; we would rather leave your palate with the fresh natural seed flavors instead of a chemically derived seasoning concoction. Unlike our competition that have to wait to have someone else package their products let alone cook their products, our gourmet seeds are sealed off from the harmful & sometimes deadly effects from oxidation, within hours after roasting, in OUR facility on OUR dedicated equipment. In short, Gerbs are the freshest allergen free, Vegan, and Kosher/Parve seed available on the market today! But don’t take our word for it, order some today, and see for yourself, why we call our product line, ‘The Deliciously Addictive Snack Food’!” http://www.gerbspumpkinseeds.com/
